Tattoo of the Day
This tattoo sleeve is so epic! From top to bottom: YES (from Prince’s ‘Lovesexy’ album artwork), M (for Madonna), “Music makes the people come together,” 1999, Girl Bros. (aka Wendy & Lisa) and Panic at the Disco.
Is that great taste in music or what?!
Thanks to Chris for letting me take this awesome photo of his arm!

I read on the interwebs that Madonna has become a billionaire! In combination with successful tours, her own line of clothing, perfume and shrewd investments, Madonna hit the jackpot. Congratulations. I freely admit that while I used to be a massive Madonna fan, she turns me off these days as she preaches love, peace and tolerance and behind the scenes she’s a huge twat and rather than just be herself when she makes music, she feels the need to try and work with the “it” producers and singers and the results are often embarrassing. However, I have always respected the fact that she is an extremely hard worker, a marketing genius and is uncompromising in her beliefs (and unfortunately, being a cunt towards fans is obviously a core value to her). You go Madonna! Now that you’ve got so much money, I hope you can relax a little and be nicer.

If you are old enough to remember when Madonna was on the cover of Penthouse Magazine, you are laughing your ass off right now.
If not, I’ll just say the word “Pussy” and maybe that’ll give you a chuckle.

Alec Monopoly – under the black light
I’ve been writing about Lab Art in Los Angeles since they opened their doors and because I live in New York, I always miss their openings. The stars aligned and I was finally able to attend my first Lab Art opening and it was a big one: Alec Monopoly’s first solo show in Los Angeles!

Alec Monopoly’s art has taken him all over the world (I know first hand because I’ve seen it in several countries) and it was really cool to be a part of such a big night for Alec. If you’ve never been to Lab Art, you should really fix that right away because the space and gallerists are very cool. If you’ve been to Lab Art, you’ll appreciate how impressive it is that the entire gallery was filled from ceiling to floor with Alec Monopoly’s work.
The Monopoly man, Richie Rich, Jack Nicholson, Bob Marley, Twiggy, Basquiat, Madonna and Bob Dylan are all represented in Alec’s art in every size and variation (and the back room also featured black light canvases), plus not one but TWO cars were in the gallery, decorated with Alec’s art.

The exhibit has something for everyone, whether you like street art or seeing interpretations of famous icons and if you are in the LA area, you should not miss this!

“Park Place” Featuring Alec Monopoly will be showing at Lab Art (located at 217 South La Brea) in Los Angeles until April 14, 2013. Don’t miss it!
